1291  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Game-opinions no one else agrees with. on: May 16, 2012, 05:44:31 PM
-Tales of Symphonia is not the best Tales-game.
-Golden Sun is boring as hell.
-Super realistic grapics make games look really awkward or downright creepy.
-Dokapon Kingdom is more fun Mario Party 6 and up.
-Games have not gotten easier, because crappy level design/stupid AI does not equal a good challenge. Games have gotten less frustrating, which is a good thing!

Are you my twin brother? Seriously, I only had to take away Kingdom Hearts, and I still think KH2 was a humongous step down from 1 (which I realize not many agree with). Only things I need to add to that are:

N64-era Rare is obscenely overrated. I felt most of their games were heavily flawed and did not enjoy any of them except Banjo-Tooie, which quickly got old.

Final Fantasy VI has a boring story with boring characters. I seriously felt like it was written by a twelve year old.

That's it, off the top of my head.

Up to 120 in One Piece. Still awesome.

Personally, as far as mecha shows go I'm a big fan of Ryousuke Takahashi's work (Votoms, Dougram, Gasaraki, Blue Gender, Layzner etc).

I like his older works, but his newer ones like Gasaraki I just couldn't get into. Except for GaoGaiGar, of course (really odd to find out he worked on it)

...a shame it doesn't have mechas though. :p

Hey, that's my line! ;P

And yeah...A Contact isn't the best way to experience Ideon, IMO. Guess it's worth it so you can skip right to Be Invoked. (and man, I was just thinking of those movies this morning. :O)

Yeah, I was expecting a Scooby-Doo like series where it's mystery of the day. Not that that would be terrible, just...I kinda would rather watch Scooby-Doo. =P

I'm back to watching One Piece while I wait for Slayers. I almost forgot how funny that show was. It's been giving me my comedy kick while I wait.

Last I heard, the "Snag" was the dynamic cutscenes they were trying to create, which they showed off at I think TGS last year. Apparently it's very time consuming.

EDIT: 13th paragraph of this page: http://andriasang.com/comtmd/ff_versus_xiii_update/

If It's not at TGS at least, with some semblence of a release date, I'm not waiting for this game anymore...

The old Pokemon Manga was pretty good, too, actually. I used to read it as a kid. Liked it more than the show.
1299  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Good cyberpunk anime? on: May 05, 2012, 02:37:28 PM
Armitage III? I liked it at least, though I know not everyone agrees. I liked the first two Megazone 23 movies, too.

No one's mentioned Nichijou? For shame. Barbarians. XD

Although in all fairness Nichijou is really, really Japanese. So for every joke you do get there will be 2 or 3 that completely go under the radar by a long shot.

That's because I already listed it under shows I very much do not like, and for the reasons you mentioned, btw. =P

Oh, and I started SKET Dance already. Liking it a lot, so thanks Kevadu. Now I just gotta figure out another show to go with it (I like watching lighter shows in pairs). I already had to set Slayers aside while I wait for the box set I ordered to arrive, and I gave up watching it on Hulu (I really do hate that site now. Last time I was there I had to sit through 3+ minute commercial breaks. May as well have watched on TV).

I remembered that there is a "Kakashi Gaiden story" in the manga. That was really good.

An entire story focused on Kakashi? That I gotta see!
1302  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime Comedies? on: May 04, 2012, 05:56:31 PM
The World Only God Knows. 

Both seasons are on Crunchyroll.  Good show.

I've heard good things about this one, and seen some fun clips. I'll be sure give it a look.

As for Fumoffu, we'll see. My friends made that show seem really stupid to me, and I was never a big fan of Full Metal Panic. But this wouldn't be the first time I've been misled about a show, nor would it be the first time I enjoyed a spin-off of something I didn't originally like, assuming that's what happens. I'll give it a try at least.
1303  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime Comedies? on: May 04, 2012, 01:40:53 PM
I second the recommendations of School Rumble and Azumanga Daioh.  Especially School Rumble, honestly.  That's actually one of my favorite shows and I feel it's pretty underrated.  (And it's not a romantic comedy.  Romance is more like a subject matter or setting, it's not a show that takes relationships seriously.)

If you can actually find it, Here is Greenwood is an oldie but goodie.  It's just a 6 episode OVA but it's hilarious.

Edit: Also, check out Sket Dance.  It's a currently airing show but Crunchyroll has it.

Thank you, Kevadu. I'll be sure to check those out. I was actually looking at SKET Dance the other day, wondering if I should try it out. Here is Greenwood was also recommended by a friend of mine, I just never got around to it. It sounds like something I'd enjoy. School Rumble...my gut's telling me I'd like it, but now I'm not so sure. And I may take Dice's advice and stick with the manga of Azumanga Daioh (assuming I ever get the urge to read manga again).

B Gata H Kei
Especially if you like School Rumble, since they have similar brands of humor

"Plot Summary: Yamada is a high school student, and a virgin, who aspires to have 100 casual sex partners. Despite this, she soon finds herself targeting and pursuing only one boy."

I rather watch Excel Saga.

I actually did check out B Gata a few months back, and I have to agree, I'd rather watch Excel Saga. While I find its existance hilarious, the actual comedy in the show was...just not funny to me. I dunno how else to describe it. I certainly hope School Rumble doesn't end up like that.
1304  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime Comedies? on: May 04, 2012, 12:12:42 AM
For complete nonsense, go with Excel Saga, Kujibiki Unbalance or Puni Puni Poemi.

Just so we're clear, I'm specifically asking people don't recommend shows like these.
1305  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Anime Comedies? on: May 03, 2012, 10:56:20 PM
So I finally started watching The Slayers and I realized I've been sorely lacking in the comedy department, especially with anime. So I may as well ask here if anyone knows of any good comedy anime that aren't Romantic Comedies like Ah My Goddess (Which I like, but don't really want right now), or Super-Ultra-Weird comedies like Bobobo, Cromartie High School, and certain parts of Nichijou and Excel Saga (which I definitely do not like).

What shows I do like are:

Sgt. Frog
Idol Project
Tenchi Muyo
The Slayers
Irresponsible Captain Taylor
